A individuals and families have moved out of Detroit, or were unable to move, from one house to another, one hood to another, one city to another. Starting from the most recent house, and tracing each subject back to previous houses, the video follows the work and life of the individuals and families, and also their memories and thoughts about the future. Comparing the decline of Detroit and the growth of its suburbs, OldHouseNewHouse/NewCityOldCity creates a physical and historical record of capital, labor, and cities that are becoming more nomadic than ever in the postmodern cultures of the developed nations.
